He started in the printing business while still in high school, working half-days in a large union printing company in Seattle.
For eight years after graduation, John worked for his employer, first as an apprentice and then as a journeyman press operator. That early experience afforded John an appreciation for the craft and technical aspects of printing — a passion he retains to this day.
Eventually, John’s entrepreneurial spirit led him out on his own with the purchase of Alpha Press in 1992. He grew the business and expanded, purchasing several other Seattle printing companies over the next few years.
In 2007, John purchased Nikko Media and adopted the Nikko Media name. He expanded his business further with the acquisition of Watermark Solutions in 2013. Today, Nikko Media is one of the premiere printers in the Pacific Northwest.
Throughout his career, John’s passion for innovation has inspired him to stay on the leading edge of the latest trends and next big thing. Keeping his word is something he takes very seriously, and he takes great pride in delivering to his clients his best work, as promised and on time.
